What Does Biden Think of Netanyahu?

Five days after the electoral victory of Israeli politician Benjamin Netanyahu, United States President Joe Biden called him on Monday to offer congratulations. A spokesman for Netanyahu said the call lasted eight minutes. Both men emphasized the strong connections between Israel and the U.S.

  • Biden said, “We are brothers; we will make history together,” and that his “commitment to Israel is unquestionable.”
  • After the call, Netanyahu tweeted that they would bring “more historic peace agreements” to the region.

Reading between the lines: White House spokesman Karine Jean-Pierre said the administration would “continue to closely monitor the government formation process.” She offered thinly veiled criticism of the expected coalition, saying the White House is concerned about Netanyahu’s inclusion of “far-right parties.”

Biden’s true feelings: Biden’s treatment of the right in the U.S. shows his real views of Netanyahu. The Biden administration calls its opponents “right-wing maga extremists” and the greatest threat to American democracy.

Bad blood: Barack Obama habitually snubbed, insulted, backstabbed, undermined and worked against Netanyahu, angered by Netanyahu’s consistent opposition.

Broken brotherhood: When Biden said Israel and the U.S. were “brothers,” he didn’t know how literally correct he was. Herbert W. Armstrong’s book The United States and Britain in Prophecy shows that the U.S. and Israel are the modern descendants of the biblical patriarch Jacob, whose name was changed to Israel. They are literally “brother” nations.

The nation of Israel will face great trouble. But Hosea 5:13 prophesies that instead of looking to its brother nation, Israel will turn for help to “Assyria”—an ancient name for modern Germany. Why? Could it be that Israel no longer trusts the United States? With Netanyahu back, expect Obama’s front man, Joe Biden, to renew his assault on this special bond between Israel and the United States.
